A $20 million investment in the Germantown, WI–based MGS manufacturing facility will create a new Healthcare Center of Excellence for the company’s strategic healthcare customers. The center will integrate MGS’s tooling, molding and equipment technologies and include a 13,000-square-foot Class 8 cleanroom.
The new cleanroom will house 20 injection molding machines ranging in tonnage from 160 to 650 tons, automated assembly cells and associated auxiliary equipment.
“This center strategically positions us to continue setting the industry standard of excellence across each area of our business while answering customer demand for an integrated, single-source of supply,” said Greg Adams, MGS CEO. “By combining our tooling, molding and equipment technologies, we increase accountability and decrease complexity—driving down costs, increasing speed-to-market, mitigating risk and transferring knowledge from one area of our business to the next. We need to deliver excellence all the way from pellet to patient.”
When the Center of Excellence is completed later this year, the company will consolidate its Illinois operations at the Germantown facility. Illinois employees will be offered positions within the Germantown operation, said MGS. The company employs 1,800 people at its multiple manufacturing facilities around the world.
Paul Manley, MGS President, commented on the consolidation, “Combining our teams on a single campus opens up significant opportunities for employees to expand their knowledge and leverage their expertise in new and increasingly meaningful ways. Enhanced collaboration and cross-functional teams will drive the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit that has been a hallmark of MGS since its inception.
“As we look to the future, we are truly excited about the enhanced value we can produce for our healthcare customers as we create new ways to partner with them to accelerate their success,” Manley added.
